From PDF to MDF: Making a guitar body routing template Part 1 | My notes (no more, no less) One of the questions that I have been asked a couple of times is “Where can I find a guitar body plan and how do I make that into a router template”? This series of posts will outline how I do it. It definitely isn’t the only way. It may not be the best way. The first challenge is finding a good accurate plan. Most plans are available in PDF format, and that is what I’ll be talking about primarily, but occasionally you’ll find a plan in DXF format (AutoCAD’s interchange format). Download and install Inkscape, a free vector drawing program. The first decision to make is what orientation of paper would best fit the plan. In Inkscape, to change the document orientation, you choose File -> Document Properties (or Shift-Ctrl-D). Next we’re going to import the PDF plan into Inkscape. Now we could just print off the plan just as it is, but to help align the sheets as they’re stuck together I like to overlay the plan with a pattern of diagonal lines. To draw the lines; Additional resources

Howard Klepper: About my guitars "Howard, that will surely end up in a famous musical instrument museum one day .... What a cool guitar!" ---Dan Erlewine Every guitar I build is a one-of-a-kind, custom instrument. It is common for custom builders to make guitars in batches of several guitars at a time. There is a lot that is out of the ordinary about my designs and construction methods. ^ top of page Tonewoods At present I build with tops of Swiss European spruce (picea abies or picea excelsa--the names are interchangeable), Adirondack red spruce (picea rubens), or western red cedar (thuja plicata). While the top wood is much more important to the tone of a guitar than the wood used for the back and sides, these parts do make an audible difference. There is a tendency when people talk about guitar woods to refer to the tone of this or that wood, or of a particular wood combination. A word about tonewood grading: The last few years have seen a lot of "grade inflation" in the tonewoods business. ^ top of page Bracing

SoundDrain - Download tracks from SoundCloud! Overview of learning styles Many people recognize that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style of learning, with far less use of the other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. There is no right mix. Using multiple learning styles and �multiple intelligences� for learning is a relatively new approach. By recognizing and understanding your own learning styles, you can use techniques better suited to you. The Seven Learning Styles Visual (spatial):You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding. Why Learning Styles? Your learning styles have more influence than you may realize. Research shows us that each learning style uses different parts of the brain. For example: Visual: The occipital lobes at the back of the brain manage the visual sense. Where to next?

A Justly-Tuned Guitar David Canright This article first appeared in 1/1, the Journal of the Just Intonation Network, Volume 2, Number 2, p.8 (1986). Contents Introduction Several years ago, I decided I needed a versatile instrument to play music using pure harmonies. My classical guitar seemed a natural choice to modify to play in Just Intonation, for several reasons: I like the sound of the instrument, it is portable and relatively easy to play, and it is capable of both melodies and harmonies. Choice Of Frets One of the guitars with interchangeable fingerboards created by Tom Stone (belonging to Jonathan Glasier) had greatly impressed me with its versatility and ease of use. Some guitars have partial frets across only certain strings, staggered with other partial frets across others, to give the desired scale in a particular tuning. Ideally, any desired tone should be available on any string, but practically there is a limit to how close the frets can get and still be playable. Playing The Thing Conclusions

Classical Guitar Tablature Tackle Any Issue With a List of 100 The List of 100 is a powerful technique you can use to generate ideas, clarify your thoughts, uncover hidden problems or get solutions to any specific questions you’re interested in. The technique is very simple in principle: state your issue or question in the top of a blank sheet of paper and come up with a list of one hundred answers or solutions about it. “100 Ways to Generate Income”, “100 Ways to be More Creative” or “100 Ways to Improve my Relationships” are some examples. “One hundred entries? Bear with me: it’s exactly this exaggeration that makes the technique powerful. When starting your list you may believe that there’s no way to get it done. Unlike the related Idea Quota tool — whose primary goal is to acquire the habit of coming up with ideas — the goal of a List of 100 is to take your mind by surprise. Ground Rules There are only two simple principles to keep in mind when making Lists of 100: 1. This is the one crucial element for the technique to work. 2. 1. 2. 3.

Building an Acoustic Guitar in your Kitchen Routing the stepped channels around the perimeter of the body originally seemed like a pretty intimidating task. Essentially, any slip of the router or major mistake here, and it would likely be fairly noticeable in the end. Using a Dremel and sharp rabbet bit, here's what the initial pass looked like up close: The next photo shows the "stepped" ledge needed to receive both the outer maple binding, and the inner black/white/black purfling strip: Because of a combination of the arched surface of the back, my less-than-amazing router base, and my equally less-than-amazing router skills, the depths of my cuts varied along the permiter of the guitar, and in some cases, the stepping effect disappeared completely. Below is a photo of the maple binding and the b/w/b/ purfling strips taped in place, prior to glueing. Below is a photo of the glue in place binding, before scraping flush to the guitar body. Another up close shot of the oversized binding protruding above the body.
